, and increasing l tempo is the role that technology played. i mean, obviously we have seen the development of syndromes, we have seen the application of super computers. one of the things you did is move the intelligence analysts tout to the base there. and integrated everything upfront. can you talk about that a little bit the role that technology played. >> yeah. there's several things in technology that changed the fight. one is obvious it was predators. it wasn't drone strikes. it was drone surveillance. because you put a surveillance that gives you full motion video, anywhere if our force to include the guys on the ground could watch what the predator is watching in real-time video. the real effect of that is several. one, it used to take 120 people to raid a target when only twenty were going inside. it takes 100 to secure it outside make sure you don't get people reinforcing or whatnot. if you can do it from the air you only send twenty. now, the other hundred can hit five other targets. we could hit six targets in the time we're hitting one. and you know more. you can put drones ov

care it is about discovering the cost as it is independent in the supply and demand, technology and all of the factors that set tom cruise's cost to $20 million there's a lot of illusions on health care and probably the most important in health care is the tale of two went in. elizabeth warren are geared in some ways corruptly that a lot of people applied for loans, subprimal loans without understanding what cost them with the disclosure and that this is one of the things congress could correct and did try to correct. let me talk about a second woman her name is becky and she's a 23-year-old who started work for the company. she expects to be really successful and she probably will be. she's an extraordinarily capable sales assistant promoted to seals woman. she's going to get to the top 1% of the income. she also thinks that she can never afford health care of her own. the system is such that even in the top 1% who is paying for the other 99 were but that's what she believes. of the cost increases by zero from now until she dies, becky will put $1.2 million in health care system. of th

that change and increasing the tempo is the role that technology played. i mean, obviously, we've seen the development of drones, we've seen the application of supercomputers. of one of the things that you did was move intelligence analysts out into balad, into your base there integrating everything up front. can you talk about that a little bit, the role that technology played? >> yeah. there are several things of technology that changed the fight. one is obvious, it was of predators. it wasn't drone strikes, it was drone surveillance. because you put a surveillance that give cans you full motion video means that anywhere on our force to include the guys on the ground could watch what the predator's watching in full-time video or realtime video. the real effect of that is several. one is where it used to take let's say 120 people to raid a target when only 20 were going inside, it takes 100 to secure it outside to make sure you don't get people reinforcing, what not. if you can do it from the air, you only send 20. now, the other hundred can hit five other targets. so we could hit six

, a slow pace of technological change in traditional society means that once someone learns as a child, their information is still useful. but today, it means what we use in modern society is tobin is no longer useful six years later. and we older people are not fluent in the technology for it surviving in society. for example, i was considered outstandingly good as they stood in and multiplying because of i know how to use rules of math. today, this is utterly useless because any idiot today can multiply eight digit numbers accurately and conversely, incompetent at skills essential for everyday life. my family's first television set was acquired in 1948. only three knobs that i quickly mastered. an on-off switch, a volume knob, and there is a channel selector knob. today, just to watch television programs, i have a television set in my living room and i had to operate three tv remotes that i find utterly confusing, although my tone explained it to me. i have to bring in my son and asked him to talk me through it while i tried to push those wretched 41 buttons. but we do to improve the

as part of everyday life. finally, the slow pace of technological change in traditional society means that what someone learns as a child is still useful when that person as old, but the rapid pace of technological change today means that what we learn as children is no longer useful 60 years later, and we older people are not fluent in the technologies essential to survive in modern society. example, as a 15 year-old high-school student i was considered outstandingly good at multiplying 2-digit numbers because i had memorized the multiplication tables, and i know how to use logarithms an airport at manipulating a slight. today most location tables and logs and slide rules are utterly useless because today in the heat can multiplied eight digit numbers accurately and instantly with a pocket calculator. conversely, i command a 75 and incompetence and skills essentials for every day life, my family's first television set that required at 1948 amelie three laws of the quickly mastered, and of switch, a volume knob, and there was a channel selector not. today. just to watch television pro

states. we live in a mixed economy. it is regulated by technology, will which has been done very well. the most regulated industry is financial services. that's not surprising. secondly, government policy created a massive mis-investment in the real estate market and that bubble burst as all bubbles do, destroying trillions of dollars of wealth. also, the institute of wall street is a serious mistake. the mistakes were secondary and in that context, it had an incentive in government policy. almost everything we have done since the financial crisis started since we have been in the short term. it would radically reduce our standard of living in the long-term. even though there is a lot of economic qualities, the real one is philosophical. finally, if we don't change direction economically, united states faces some serious long-term problems. we are doing some very bad things to her children and grandchildren. so what happened? well, we deal too much residential real estate. we go to investing in technology, we should have spent less and save more and borrowed a lot less from foreigners

it is about discovering that thing, that cost as if it is independent of the supply-demand technology and all the factors that set tom cruise cost at $20 million. there are a lot of illusions and health care and probably the most important in health care i think is illustrated what i would call the tale of two women. one is elizabeth warren. elizabeth warren argeo, and i think in some ways correctly that one of the issues of the financial crisis is a lot of people apply for subprimal loans without understanding what it costs them, the documentation and the disclosure and this was one of the things that congress would try to correct. the very same principle hiding from us the cost of fractions is the foundation of our health care system. let me talk about a second woman. her name is becky and she's a 23-year-old the started to work for my company. as a, i will talk about what health care is going to cost. she thinks someone else is magically paying for health care. on of the fascinating things is she was really successful, she probably will be. she's an extraordinarily capable sales assistant

historic advances in every universe, everything, medicine, technology, science, space exploration, technology of every kind, no world war iii. no nuclear exchange. so something worked pretty well. as flawed as that was. and they did something else that was particularly important in that they built coalitions of common interest. and i'm going to come back to that as i wind up my remarks. coalitions of common interest. because what they recognized if we were to, the world, avert another 50 years like the world had been through the first 50 years of the 20th century, then we were going to have to define relationships not by our differences, but by our common interests. and only then could we build foundations of mutual trust or mutual common interests in order to deal with the differences. you can't start with the differences. it took us a long time to figure that out. these leaders did have that figured out, and i'm going to come back to that point, because i think it's particularly relevant today. but what toi nby said about civilizations was very instructive. and he said that civi

grappling with is in this age of new technology what is an unreasonable search and seizure? okay matt all right? so we have talked about the government and can they fly over your home and new technologies being used that emanate to your home. we have had questions about wiretaps. we have had questions about gps navigators and tracking devices. and we will have many more. for sure, the forefathers had no idea that the computer and computer chips would exist. even benjamin franklin, i doubt very much that he knew. [laughter] that he ever in his wildest fantasies imagined what we had today. it debuted terms that are more specific than they did, we wouldn't have been given the opportunity to define this so they did a mixture of some very clear things. you can't quarter the militia in people's homes except in times of war. that is pretty specific. but there were many other things they talked about generally. the document gave us a concept. we are guided by that concept. >> what worries you about the constitution? are there any trends that you might have your eye on? >> are you a lawyer? i didn

this class and a chance for whether or not we can use the same technology that will create an enhanced e-book and use that technology to invite large numbers of students to take part and send in questions in question each other and get to know each other using the web. there are a lot of newfangled items going around about how this is presented. i am struggling to catch up with myself. i instructed me how to it to beat and twitter and facebook and all these other things. a lot of things like the enhanced e-book i can't do because i don't have an ipad. i do believe in the possibility of the media. if you're trying to a tell a legitimate story you need to take every resource, every chance you can to make connections. that is the novelty side of what i am presenting here and i'm interested in what you guys think about this, even the notion of repeating some source or using some of the language. states things together. the let me talk a little bit about ms. marin -- misremembering an hour and balanced sense of history, the urgency that i think it lies in this subject. while i want to do it,

of this history for yourself. so, i'm going to be at the mercy of technology here and see if i can get this to work. one of the first things i did when researching this book was to look at washington, d.c. as a whole. for years and years and years, washington, d.c. was a majority african-american city. i think the numbers are changing right now. but for a long time, washington, d.c. was an african-american majority city. so the question came to me. there are hundreds of statues in the city limits of washington, d.c. sitting on public property. some of these statutes had to be of african-americans i just knew. so i started looking around the city and trying to find out how many statues are there of real african-americans on public land in washington, d.c.? now, i want to be specific about what i am talking about. i am talking about statues of real african-americans, not models. for example, there are statues of african-americans in the korean war memorial. however, these are models. these are statues meant to represent all african americans who fought in the korean war. no one can look

. without too many houses, houses never face. we should've invested in technology, manufacturing, education. we should've spent less and save more. we should've borrowed this from foreigners. the important thing people don't get, housing this consumption because people individually think they invested in the house. we can assume a house like another mobile. what they're really doing is over consuming. we had a massive overconsumption. it's analogous to eating the seed corn as analogous. protect millions of people headed to the the wrong thing. we talked and honda both houses to the mortgage bankers, presidential legal attorney. those millions of people try to learn how to do something it's productive in a global economy. in addition, construction which is their competitive. you try that manufacturing wages, which we did with this artificial construction boom in miniature of millions of manufacturing jobs overseas to places they can have china and initially people in india and china didn't know how to do the work while. for having a really difficult time getting those jobs back. they make a

to formulate a question about him, remember that this is another world technologically. and remained so until the rusher retired from "national review." his successor publisher said when he came right in afterwards it was still operating in the 1950s, that is, in 88, 89, still operating in the 1950s with carbon paper and secretaries who were treated as secretaries. i guess that's a polite term for sexist and it's not an important point to the more important point is, you know, carbon paper. rusher would not have been teamed on social media himself, were he still alive and active today. but he would have appreciated it. to get back to the point, it's an important one, this was an era when people communicated on paper, and they communicated at length on paper. that was a tremendous resource for my research at the library of congress are rusher's papers are. there's been sufficient evidence -- excuse me, sufficient interest in the rusher papers amongst scholars who are interested in the development of the conservative movement who i think more often than not are liberals. in the rusher papers th

for neighborhood technology in chicago said what happens if instead of measuring co2 per mile, we start measuring per person or per household? because there are only a certain number of us, and we can choose toly in places where we -- to live in places where we pollute more or less. if you look at per household, the red and green flip, and by far the healthiest place you can live is in the city. manhattanites use a third of the electricity of people in dallas. why? well, they're heating and cooling their neighbors, right? their apartments are touching. but even more importantly than that is the less driving they're doing. transportation is the greatest single contributor to, um, most civilians' greenhouse gas. you know, in our daily lives the biggest choice we can make, you know, when i built my house in washington, d.c., i cleaned the shelves on the solar water heater, i got the super insulation, i got the bamboo flooring, i have a wood burning stove that supposedly a log burn anything my wood burning stove contributes less co2 to the environment than if it were left to decompose in the forest b
